Mitchell was in terrible pain last night after a team mate landed awkwardly on the back of his leg. It looked as though it may have been a hamstring injury but it appears that is was a much worse injury.
This is terrible news as Mitchell was just hitting his stride as a fullback, having been much more active in attack and defensive and having dropped a little extra weight in his transition from a test centre into a fullback.
This is a huge blow to the Rabbitohs chances this season and really put a dampener on the clubs 38-0 thrashing of the Parramatta Eels.
Hopefully Mitchell can get through rehab ok and get back in 2021 to his best form.
